Brazil: Wärtsilä power plant order

Wärtsilä has been awarded an order worth approximately EUR 54 million to build an 83MW power plant in Brazil. The customer is Geradora de Energis do Amazonas S/A, part of the Servtec group. The plant, to be built in the city of Manaus in northern Brazil, will be commissioned ready to operate in summer 2006. Wärtsilä is also negotiating a contract to operate and maintain the facility.
"Ordering the entire power plant, ready to operate, from one supplier gives us financial advantages and mitigates our project risks," says Mr Lauro Fiüza Junior, President and CEO of Servtec. "The engines will initially run on heavy fuel oil but will be converted to operate on natural gas as soon as a gas pipeline is in operation," says Mr Robson Campos, Regional Director of Wärtsilä.
